Kíla, the Dublin-based group called "the cutting edge of progressive Gaelic-language music" by Billboard, will perform at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute on Saturday, March 25, at 8:00 p.m. The concert will bring to a close the popular series "Celtic Music for the Millennium." The previous three concerts in the series played to sold-out audiences. Limited-view seats for Kíla are still available at the reduced price of $8.
To order tickets, call 413-458-2303, extension 324. The Washington Post has called Kíla's most recent CD, Tog E Go Bog E, "the most impressive example of Celtic fusion music yet." The seven band members are multi-instrumentalists and composer who perform their own original material. Lead vocalist Rónán Ó Snodaigh is joined by his brothers Colm on flute and Rossa on bousouki, as well as piper Eoin Dillon, fiddler Dee Armstrong, guitarist Lance Hogan, and bassist Brian Hogan. The group is known for danceable tunes that bring the percussion and bass lines of Jamaican and Nigerian music to the traditional Irish sound.
